Poured in a snifter from 12 oz. bottle

A: Deep golden, clear, withe a foamy white head.
S: Very herbal hops, smoky, grassy, a little mango and pineapple, a little pine, and some dank, resiny notes.
T: Resiny bitterness with strong herbal and smoky characteristics. Light pine, with citrus and tropical fruits in the body. Finishes on the dry side.
M: The lightest side of medium, or the heaviest side of light.
O: Love the flavors I'm getting from this beer. Strong flavors from the Mosaic, Chinook, and Simcoe hops. Very glad this is a year-round offering.

Another great drinkable beer from New Belgium. Pours light orange with a thin head. Smells of floral pine with a sharp aroma of tropical citrus. Light bitterness pairs well with the malty grain bill. Amarillo hops really pull through bittering this beer, with the overall profile being a great go-to IPA.

A nice clear color that pours with a fairly thick head that keeps a thin foam throughout. Slightly oily feel with a nice grapefruit citrus taste that isn't overwhelming. I found this one to be an easy drinker with a great taste that leaves you wanting a 2nd.

Pretty generic IPA - sadly I did get some diacetyl / butter notes with this one, but beyond that it had a pretty pedestrian hop bill, not super bitter but just some PNW flavors with little else
